Sourcing Belief: From the Gulf Region of the Middle East to GCC’s Art Practice

Conversation with GCC: Wednesday, February 7th, 6:30-8:00 pm | The James Gallery

GCC’s art practice often utilizes widely circulating digital imagery, political theater, and contemporary life generated in the Middle East to create monumental objects and experiences. This may result in seemingly ancient bas-relief sculptures, immersive sculptural environments, and sound pieces, for example. In the evening’s conversation, the artists will address questions about ritual and belief systems in nation-building with particular attention to new practices of the governments in the Gulf region of the Middle East, and parallels in art-making.

Co-sponsored by the Middle East and Middle Eastern American Center (MEMEAC) at the Graduate Center, CUNY.
